    Default Chiefs 2009 salary cap figures


    0 Not allowed!
    Not including rookie contracts for those rookies coming in from the 2009 draft, these players have contracts with the Chiefs NEXT season. If the trend continues, the estimated salary cap for 2009 is $121.8 million. These salary cap figures are based on the contracts that they sign. They are not factored in with their "Cap Hit." Usually, a player's "Cap Hit" is larger than their salary number.

    Waters, Brian- 3.6mil
    Williams, Demario-1mil


    Total committed salary for the 2009 season is:
    $51,743,750

    Not including the "cap hit" figures and signing bonuses for rookies, the Chiefs will have somewhere around $65 million in cap room to play with. The bargaining agreement requires teams to spend AT LEAST 86% of their salary cap. That figure comes out to be roughly $99.76 million if the cap est. is correct. "Cap Hit" numbers and signing bonuses with eat up a big portion of the $40 million the Chiefs have to spend, but that still leaves a big number for the Chiefs to make up just to get in compliance with the NFL/NFLPA agreement.

    Some names the Chiefs will have to look at just from their own crop of free agents, will be:
    Jason Babin- Starting DE
    Rocky Boiman- Starting LB
    Adrian Jones- Backup OG
    Jon McGraw- Backup S
    Rudy Niswanger- Starting C
    Jarrad Page- Starting S
    Pat Thomas- Backup LB
    Jeff Webb- WR

    Just from that list, you're looking at having to either re-sign or replace 4 or 5 starters to go along with the holes we already have.

    Let's say we let all our free agents walk. What are we left with?

    Defense:
    LE- OPEN
    LT- Tyler
    RT- Dorsey
    RE- Hali
    LOLB- OPEN
    MLB- OPEN
    ROLB- D. Johnson
    LCB- Carr/Leggett
    RCB- Flowers
    SS- Pollard
    FS- OPEN

    Offense:
    WR- Bowe
    LT- Albert/Taylor/OPEN
    LG- Waters/OPEN
    C- OPEN/Waters
    RG- OPEN/Albert
    RT- OPEN/Taylor/Albert
    TE- Gonzo/Cottam
    WR- Bradley
    QB- Thigpen/OPEN
    FB- Cox
    RB- Johnson/Charles

    Special
    K-Barth
    P-Colquitt
    KR-Robinson/Charles

    That leaves us with potentially 4 holes on defense and 3 holes on offense if we go with Thigpen. 7 holes to fill with either the guys we have, free agents or the 2009 draft class.

    To recap, we'll have roughly $25-35 million in cap space. We're going to be drafting in the top 5 in April. We will have a new GM. We will have 7 holes to fill.

    On offense, we're going to need a:
    Center
    OG and/or
    OT

    On defense, we're going to need a:
    DE
    OLB
    MLB
    S



    You are the new GM. Go have fun.

    Why do you keep putting words in my mouth. I agree with you that the team is closer than most think to being a playoff contender. Didn't know that Herm was the only one capable of re-building a football team since he has done it soo many times before. Dude, I am just trying to get you to say that Herm may not be the complete answer in the rebuild.
